The good intentions are obvious, but a bit more crunch is sorely needed.
Based on a true story, The Source is a passionate but sometimes heavy-handed argument for gender equality in the Middle East.
Offers an interesting and beautifully made picture of some important issues surround women's rights in patriarchal societies.
The mix of female empowerment and Middle eastern colour is kept just on the right side of schmaltzy by firecracker turns from Leïla Bekhti as the headstrong strike-leader and Biyouna as a formidable widower.
Often rather moving...
The sheer injustice at the heart of an overlong tale still creates an automatic sympathy for the women, sisters in a way to the women in Made In Dagenham.
This populist parable draws intriguing battle lines between the sexes, but then forgets what it was supposed to be fighting about.
Radu Mihaileanu's update of Lysistrata with overtones of the Arab Spring never settles on a consistent tone; as a result, serious moments lack force and lighter moments feel hollow.
A whimsical tale of women, water and wedlock, with precious little direction, drive or purpose.
